DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 15
Ugh, I’m having a hard time this morning… I really just wanted to stay in bed, and so did the puglets. They always look at me with such offense when I interrupt their snuggles and get up. XD Definitely my spirit animals…
Well, this is certainly an interesting flavor – wildflower honey? It doesn’t smell overly floral, thank goodness. I’m preparing it with 12 ounces of warm water and 4 ounces of warm milk as I just need some comfort this morning.
It’s quite mild in flavor, maybe I shouldn’t have added milk… Oh well, too late now! I’m not really sure whether I get a sense of honey, it’s difficult to tell with the sugar involved. I do get a bit of a floral lilt at the end of the sip, and I think it reminds me of fresh rose among other flowers. I’m no flower expert, so I have a hard time describing floral notes…
Even after taking a bite of toast with jam to cut the sweetness, I don’t think I taste honey. It’s more of a light, nectarous floral flavor. Honestly, I rather like it, which is surprising given I’m rather particular about floral flavors.
Speaking of jam, today’s is Fig-Cardamom Spread. I admit, I was very excited when I saw it, as I love figs and fig jam, and have a growing appreciation for cardamom lately. But to me, these two don’t work together… It comes out tasting a bit like menthol? Or dark molasses with menthol? Odd, and not very pleasant hah!
